Boxing champ Tommy Morrison has succumbed to the disease AIDS at age 44. Fans and friends are saddened by the news. Have a look at some of their thoughts, videos, and tweets. First, have a look at Tommy Morrison’s words regarding his battle with AIDS:

I lived a permissive, fast and reckless lifestyle. I hope I can serve as a warning that living this lifestyle can really lead to only one thing and that’s misery. . . . I’ve never been so stupid in my life. I thought I was bulletproof and I’m not.

If getting up here and confronting this problem out in the open can get just one person out there to take a more responsible attitude toward sex, then I would feel I scored my biggest knockout ever.

I thought the real danger of contracting this rested in the arms of those who subjected themselves to a certain kind of lifestyle–addicts who share needles and people who practice a homosexual lifestyle.

I honestly believed I had a better chance of winning the lottery than of contracting this disease. I’ve never been so wrong in my life. The only sure prevention of this disease is abstinence.

This disease does not discriminate, and that is very, very clear to me now. It doesn’t matter if you live in a drug-infested ghetto in New York City or if you live on a ranch in Jay, Oklahoma. This is something that can jump up and bite you no matter where you are at. And it doesn’t matter what color you are.

And now have a look at the heartfelt tweets …

If you're a Tommy Gun fan, share it!
